RTÉ has announced that Fontaines DC will broadcast an exclusive session on 2FM this Sunday.

The show, airing at 7pm, will also feature an interview with 2FM's Dan Hegarty.

The session was recorded in recent weeks when Fontaines DC gave their very first live performance of their new album A Hero’s Death in its entirety at the RTÉ Radio Centre.

The release of the band’s second album on July 31 follows their debut Dogrel, which was universally acclaimed and shortlisted for the Mercury Music Prize and the RTÉ Choice Music Prize.

Sunday night's The Alternative with Graham Smyth on 2FM will feature a special exclusive playlist curated by Fontaines DC from 10pm. The list features tunes by The Beach Boys, Radiohead and The Jesus and Mary Chain among others. 

The Fontaines DC broadcast is part of a weekend of special music broadcasts over the bank holiday weekend on 2FM, in the station’s ongoing Epic Summer of Music series.
